What a run. @patriotact has come to an end. I got to work with the best writers, producers, researchers, and animators in the game. My 2 babies were born and grew up with the show. TY to @Netflix and everyone who watched. Now it’s time to return these screens to Best Buy 😎 pic.twitter.com/4s4TrsKWe6

This is a huge loss this show was consistently funny and uniquely informative!!!!! Netflix has cancelled 3 really interesting late night-type shows (Chelsea, The Break, and now Patriot Act) and it's very sad!!! https://t.co/TjsNdtnW9D

can we cyberbully @netflix into not cancelling patriot act, like not the social media person but whoever made the call. hasan was doing important shit with it but I guess the descent into fascism is the best time to cancel an informative sociopolitical show run by a POC lol

The fact that Netflix cancels something as important as Patriot Act, then turns around and makes three Kissing Booth movies…I hate it here https://t.co/pOtn9KBgv7
